A DISCOVERY THAT COULD CHANGE THE COURSE OF HISTORY
1992. In the underground archives of the KGB, agent Alexei Soloviev discovers by chance a secret testament of Adolf Hitler seized in his bunker by the Red Army
Thirty years later, unusual disturbances in Islamist circles connected with neo-Nazi organizations lead the young Intelligence Services analyst, Melanie Carson, to infiltrate a group of white supremacists in Pennsylvania.
A discovery as terrifying as it is unexpected will lead her into a dangerous adventure with her new companion, Jeff Cartright.
Would the Nazi expeditions to Tibet in the 1930's have enabled Himmler to find the original text of the Karma of Kalachakra, an esoteric work attributed to the Buddha himself, which allows the followers of Dalai Lama's to find the reincarnation of their leader? Could neo-Nazis, whose rallying sign is the number "88" – an 8 for each "H" in "Heil Hitler" – have succeeded in taking control of several terrorist organizations, with the common objective of upsetting the world order and perhaps resurrecting the Third Reich?
From Washington to Pennsylvania, from Boston to Moscow, from Eastern Germany to Banda Aceh and the suffocating jungles of Sumatra, The Third Testament takes the reader on a breathtaking adventure where reality often surpasses fiction.

History packed book. agent Alexei Soloviev discovers by chance a secret testament of Adolf Hitler seized in his bunker loved it...
As usual, Pierre Rehov has no pity for his readers and forces them to stay up until the early hours of the morning, unable to let go of his book. With an ultra-documented background, we are plunged into three intertwined universes: neo-Nazism in the former GDR and in Moscow, Islamism in Indonesia and occultism in Tibet. The author takes us on a journey between the USA, South-East Asia, Germany and Russia in an intrigue worthy of the greatest spy novels. And as usual with Pierre Rehov, if the reader sacrifices his nights to read, he comes out a winner on two levels: he is entertained and feels his heart beating to the rhythm of the twists and turns, but as a bonus he comes out of this adventure more informed, more educated, more open to the realities of our world. A great book.
Rehov has written an action packed suspenseful book. I enjoyed the many geographic locations described in the book. The plot had twists and turns until the final page.
The story in this book could be reality. In 1992 Alexie Soloviev is hunting through the KGB's secret documents and finds Hitler's will. Neo Nazi groups, thirty some years later, are acting upon the information in the Will. An intelligence agent with the government, Melanie, infiltrates a White Supremist group to find out the particulars of this plan. In order to thwart the recreation of the Third Reich she and her accomplice, Jeff, must find Alexie and destroy the plan. Well written and totally believeable. I was provided this copy by NetGalley in return for honest, unpaid review.
The Third Testament is composed of two stories that take place in two different places and two different timelines which converge towards the end of the book in an explosion of action that leads to the ending of the story with a twist that will leave the reader thinking about the surprising alternative with which the author leaves us. Although it took me a while to find a liking for the book, as the story progresses it becomes more and more interesting.
